Certain employers must provide federal form (referred to as a Form 1095-C) to the IRS and employees concerning the health insurance coverage that was offered by the employer to all full-time employees, individuals entitled to an offer of coverage, and to anyone else who is covered by the employer’s health plan.
Initially, employers were required to distribute the Form 1095-C to employees/former employees by January 31, 2019, however; the IRS extended the distribution deadline to March 4, 2019. We have collaborated with Plansource to manage the process; Plansource will mail Form 1095-C no later than March 4, 2019.
Taxpayers can prepare and file their returns as they normally would. You do not have to wait for Form 1095-C to file your tax return.
While you do not need to attach form your tax filing, once you receive Form 1095-C, please review your form for accuracy and retain this form with your other important tax records.
You can use the following documents to help you prepare your taxes and as proof of your insurance coverage:
Explaination of Benefits
Statement of Benefits
W-2 or payroll statements reflecting health insurance deductions.
Other statements indicating that you or a member of your family had health care coverage.
You won’t need to send the IRS proof of your health coverage; however, you should keep it with your other tax records. For more information, visit the IRS website at irs.gov.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact: Maria Belmares Herrera at (616) 234-4052 or Debra Davis at (616) 234-4175.

If you have already given consent, youdo not need to consent again. Consent already given is valid for all future years. You will automatically receive an email notification when your 2013 W-2 is available. However, if you would like to revoke your electronic consent in order to receive a paper W-2, please go to the link below and follow the instructions to revoke consent, no later January 15th.
Employees who have not already given consent to receive their W-2 electronically can choose to do so before January 15th, and then will receive an email notification when their W-2 is available. By consenting to receive your W-2 electronically, you agree to view and/or print your W-2 through GRCC’s employee self-service. You will no longer receive a paper copy, but you can print the electronic version as often as you would like.
Paper W-2’s are still available and will be mailed no later than January 31st, to those employees who have not given consent to receive their W-2 electronically. Reissued W-2 statements or additional copies will not be available until March 1st, and there will be a $10.00 service charge.
